    The perfect Tele?

    In addition to his smokin' solo career and fronting the power trio Winery Dogs with Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan, Richie Kotzen has lent his considerable chops to Poison, Mr. Big, and his fusiony Vertu outing with Stanley Clark and Lenny White. Richie deploys a unique fingerpicking technique on his weapon of choice: the Fender Telecaster - but not just any Telecaster. Richie's signature axe is what many of us Tele fanatics here at Music Experience think of when we conjure our perfect Telecaster. If you appreciate ash bodies with belly and forearm contours, eye-popping flamed maple tops, gold hardware and abalone inlays, buttery playability, and a huge range of tone bookended by traditional Tele twang and modern high-gain - then the Fender Richie Kotzen Telecaster is for you.

    Amazing vintage Tele sounds

    When DiMarzio set out to design a neck pickup that delivers amazing vintage Tele sound, they knew they had to go beyond merely copying a 40-year-old design. Sporting controlled-tension coil winding, special wire, and hand-calibrated magnets, from ppp to fff, the Twang King delivers pick attack response like you've never experienced in a single-coil. Of course, the Twang King is wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.

    Killer lead sounds

    With less DC resistance than a standard Tele single-coil and twin-blade poles for less string-pull than standard rod magnets, DiMarzio's Chopper T Bridge pickup is much hotter and punchier than single-coil Tele bridge pickups - and its has way more twang and snap than a typical humbucker. The Chopper T concentrates its energy in the lows and mids for a huge sound with lots of crunch - not to mention perfect lead tones for everything from country to rock to fusion (and everything in between). And of course, being a humbucking design, there's no noise.

    What Fender Says...

    Versatile rock guitarist Richie Kotzen has long wowed audiences with his impeccable chops and deft Telecaster artistry, with stints in Poison and Mr. Big and his own prolific career as a solo artist and sideman. Once available only in Japan, the elegant Richie Kotzen Telecaster guitar is now available worldwide, with features including a beautiful flame maple top on a comfortably contoured ash body, gold hardware and a distinctive combination of DiMarzio® pickups.

    Ash Body

    Strong and dense, ash is a longtime classic for electric instrument bodies. Notably resonant and sweet sounding, it’s characterized by clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end. It also features an attractive grain that takes lighter-colored finishes especially beautifully.

    Flame Maple Top

    This Telecaster features the notably elegant high-end design element of a beautifully figured flame maple top.

    Gold Hardware

    Gold hardware imparts an especially elegant gilded look to this instrument—a pleasingly high-end appearance that isn’t overdone or ostentatious, but rather just the right touch of refinement.

    Large "C" Neck Profile

    The Richie Kotzen Telecaster features a modern neck with a thicker “C” profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), and a maple fingerboard with a 12” radius and 22 jumbo frets.

    Dimarzio Pickups

    The supercharged sound of the Richie Kotzen Telecaster comes from its high-performance pickup configuration, consisting of DiMarzio® DP173 Twang King™ (neck) and DP384 Chopper T™ (bridge) single-coil pickups.

    Rotary Series/Parallel Switch

    The Richie Kotzen Telecaster's special series-parallel rotary switch delivers versatile tonality from both pickups.
